It’s here ladies and gentlemen, the highlight of December. The reason to be alive during this time. Christmas. Everyone (those who celebrate it that is) wants to have the perfect Christmas filled with joy, food, and family. But somehow there are things out there that are a disaster waiting to happen. So here is a list of things that you should never do on Christmas.
9. Burn the Ham

Pretty much a death wish. Especially in this ninety-ninth hour. You will be the subject of every joke for years to come. Friends coming over expecting something to eat but met by an excuse will leave you red in the face.
8. Give Homemade Gifts

Don’t do that. Just Don’t.
7. Get Drunk and make a pass at a distant relative.
If you do not wish to have one of the most awkward periods of your life, then control yourself when you are at a house. Alcohol can lead to things that you will always regret.
6. Serve Black pudding

If you do, there will be blood…
You are not getting paid until the end of January. Please remember that.
4. Stick to your diet

We know Carnival is right around the corner and that extra five pounds is annoying. But what’s annoying is when food is passing around and you refuse it, yet you are ogling at persons’ plates, eating your celery sticks. That’s annoying! Either forget your diet or don’t come.
3. Stress yourself
It’s not about you or about your guests. It’s about Jesus being born. What did you get him for his birthday?
2. Forget Those Without Food
Remember there are persons out there with little or absolutely nothing to eat. It is not Gluttonousmas, where there is too little consideration for those in need. Share your meal this Christmas and put some smiles on some faces.
1. Forget Those Without Shelter
One of the key moments in the story of Christmas is the moment when there was no room for Jesus, leaving Mary and Joseph to resort to a stable. During these crime-ridden times, one must be cautious, but if you know of someone in need, a helping hand can go a long way.
